We report the development of a seroma deep to a mesh prosthesis used for laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR). Seroma formation anterior to mesh after LVHR is very common; however, the formation of a deep seroma has been rarely reported in the literature and the imaging appearance of a seroma posterior to mesh after LVHR has not been previously described. We present the imaging appearance and our clinical results of aspirating two seromas posterior to mesh after LVHR.
